It will be held on 28th to 30th September 2018, at the North Metropolitan TAFE, Aberdeen Street, Northbridge. The event is organised by Cher Shakleton of Ceramic Arts WA and the program includes the following workshops:
Kasirajan Subbaiah will be building a 2 metre high horse.
Stuart McKay will be building a small kiln made from a stainless steel pipe. Stuart will also be firing his own small kiln and all visitors will have a chance to bring in a small cup to put into one of the firings.
Nanna Bayer will be demonstrating Nerikomi, using porcelain.
Wikipedia explains Nerikomi as being "a contemporary Japanese term for marbling ceramic techniques".
There was a lot of this about from about 1978–1995.
Zsolt Faludi will be wheel throwing (a term used in ceramics for shaping) and altering forms.
Melanie Jayne will be slip casting her unique forms. Slip casting is when a liquid clay body slip is poured into plaster moulds and allowed to form a layer, known as the cast, on the inside walls of the mould.
Bela Kotai will be talking to you about the connection between music and clay. Bela will also demonstrate coil and throw making a large form.
Greg Crowe will be making marks on large thrown platters and bowls.
There will also be some short sessions, and these will include:
Nathan Bray will be talking all about kilns.
Robyn Varpins will be hand-building.
Elaine Bradley will be printing on clay.
Ursula Pagels will be demonstrating Ikebana. Ikebana is, of course, the Japanese art of flower arrangement.
As well as all these above displays and workshop, there will also be a demonstrator and a delegates exhibition.
The Pot Market will be on again, and here you will be able to buy and sell your pots.
